On a side note - if you do order the set, you may want to order them individually so that they ship in their own boxes (gotta love Prime!). I ordered the 1.5 qt, 5.5 qt, and 7.5 qt together. Amazon shipped the 5.5 and 7.5 in the same box and the ding-dong that packaged them decided to put them side by side in a huge amazon box (rather than stacking them with air cushions in between) and then shower them with the Amazon air packets. I opened the box and there were noticeable dings in the 7.5 qt bowl, but the 5.5 qt one looks to have survived without any noticeable damage. The 7.5 qt one is going back - it's a shame that it was needlessly damaged.
I'll be sure to update if I notice any rust forming, but based on the other reviews, I do not expect that to be the case.
Over 2 years with these bowls and they are still going strong. We use the smallest and medium sized bowls at least once a week and typically throw them in the dishwasher. There is no sign of rust. The nice mirror finish inside does get scratched, but that is to be expected with using metal utensils. Still loving these bowls.
But that damn sticker it ships with!
It's unlike anything I've ever seen on any kitchen item. My kudos to the chemists who developed the adhesive: it simply WILL NOT LET GO. I also admire the work of the chemists who developed the sticker's coating: it simply WILL NOT ALLOW OILS OR WATER TO PENETRATE, and weaken the glue. The marketing person who approved the sticker? He or she can go suck an egg. There's another kick in the pants: the label is thin. So good luck getting the edge of a scraper underneath it.
This is the style of sticker you'd use for a vital piece of safety information on a public bus. It's not a style of sticker that any sane person would choose if they knew that it was meant to ever be removed.
In the weeks since this bowl arrived, I've duly been working my way through the canonical list of Household Tips On How To Remove Stickers. I finally got it off by putting an inch of water in it and then setting it on top of a pot of boiling water for about a half an hour. It left behind some gummy residue.
This is a bit like a bowl that arrives coated in a thin layer of tar that smells like kerosene. "Oh, well, here's a handy tip for removing the tar, so you can actually start using it..." Yeah, lovely, but I didn't buy this expecting to have a whole project on my hands.
This isn't the only heavy mixing bowl available on Amazon. This isn't such a great bowl that you shouldn't choose one that's easier to prepare for use.
I find the size and steel make-up to be essential for my kitchen -- perfect for popcorn, parties, draining large quantities of scorching soup, or vigorously mixing pasta salads, etc.
I purchased this in 2015 and the label inside the bowl was immediately and easily removable.
Cons major and pretty minor:
1) The grade of stainless steel is NOT specified on the bowl. I suspect it is NOT 18/10, as the brushed outside surface DOES stain. Disappointing. But the stains have been removable with a mild abrasive (baking soda) which did NOT mar the finish.
2) The bowl is marked twice on the outside "7.5 QT (7.1 L)". That is the printing one can see in the picture. As I plan on using it as a serving piece at parties, not just for no-one-is-looking-mixing, I wish it were marked on its bottom, instead.
But I nevertheless recommend it heartily.
